THE RELOCATING OF THE BUILDING THAT HOUSED THE FOX AND FIDDLE PUB –POST #2

04 Aug

Since I photographed the 1870 houses on John Street, which are being relocated to a site further south on the street, there have been further changes.

The houses have now been lifted higher off their original foundations, and another set of steel girders inserted underneath.

The girders inserted last week (light blue in colour) now rest on another set of girders (dark blue in colour).

Two sets of girders now support the houses, with railway ties beneath them.

The 1870 houses will eventually be placed to the right (north side) of the building with the Daniels sign on it.
